Vertu, Nokia’s luxury phone division introduced a new phone from its Ascent Ti collection: the Vertu Ascent Ti Damascus Steel. The Damascus Steel Ascent Ti is made using an ancient steel forging method which consists of continuous folding and hammer-forging to improve the strength and hardness of the metal. Apparently it’s said that, this method was used to create blades including the Japanese Samurai, Franconian and Indian Wootz swords during different periods of time in history.
The specs of Vertu Damascus Steel are probably similar to the ones found in all the Ascent Ti phones, so they should include: a QVGA display, S40 UI, GSM/UMTS connectivity, a 3.2MP camera with LED flash, and 4GB of internal memory. The Vertu Ascent Ti Damascus Steel features a swirl design which has been etched by hand meaning every phone is unique. Only one hundred will be made with only one of each going to the worlds most important Vertu stores. Its price is not known at the moment.
